I’ve been working in the field of music & media licensing since the early 1980’s. I started this adventure as the producer of the syndicated television program “Today in Music History”. In 1990 I opened the New York office of Diamond Time, Ltd., a full-service rights clearance company. For the next 20 years, I cleared or supervised the clearance of several hundred rights clearance projects and trained dozens of clearance professionals.
I'm currently the VP of Global ImageWorks, an independent stock footage library with an active Film Research & Rights Clearance department (www.globalimageworks.com). I'm part of an experienced team of researchers and rights clearance professionals, who provide film research, rights clearance services to outside production companies. My specialty is archival film making and music performance footage.
